FUD

Fear Uncertainty Doubt

1 [concept]
Negative sentiment towards the future of cryptocurrencies in general, or a specific one
2 [concept]
A feeling often widespread during bear markets and crashes. Information that is negative towards cryptocurrency in general, or towards specific coins – especially when it comes to future prices – is an instance of FUD
3 [information]
The spread of FUD is often coordinated and aligned with a personal agenda. One good way to attack a project is to spread false, misleading or exaggerated news about your rivals on social media. As such, the intent of a source should always be taken into consideration.
